The long-awaited next episode of The Grand Tour finally has a release date – it’s hitting Amazon Prime Video on December 18, 2020.

Fans of the Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May-fronted series are in for a treat, as it’s been announced that the trio will return for another action-packed special episode before the year is out, and they’re heading overseas.

The episode, titled A Massive Hunt, takes the presenters to the islands of Reunion and Madagascar, where they’ll be “hunting for pirate treasures” while traversing unforgiving terrain in “some of the most extremely modded cars they have ever built.”

The trio will race three sports cars on the world’s most expensive piece of tarmac – a ring road that’s built out in the sea – before taking on what’s been described as one of the most challenging roads in the world.

Fans have had a while to wait for this episode, as it’s been almost a year since the last episode, The Seamen Special, debuted on Amazon Prime Video on December 13, 2019, where the boys swapped cars for boats.

Filming for the new Madagascar special was delayed due to the ongoing global health crisis, and Clarkson has joked that he’s not too happy about having to share a ‘support bubble’ with his co-presenters.

In a selfie of the trio shared on Instagram, he wrote: “Of all the f***ing bubbles I could have ended up in.”

While Clarkson, Hammond and May’s journey to Madagascar has taken longer than expected, fans will be glad to know there’s plenty more in store, including an episode filmed in Scotland and a previously-thwarted trip to Russia, which is still in the works.

Speaking to RadioTimes about their failed attempt to go to Russia, May explained: “I think it’s fairly well-known that we had a big trip to Russia planned, that is on hold for all the obvious reasons.

“It’s all been planned and we can definitely do it when the restrictions lift so nothing is canceled, it’s postponed.”

You can catch The Grand Tour Presents: A Massive Hunt on Amazon Prime Video from December 18, 2020.


TikTokker explains how she managed to live in her car for over a year

TikTok star Nikita Crump has managed to pull off the incredible feat of living in her car, a 2012 Honda Civic, for over one year. Now, she has explained how she was able to pull it off in a new YouTube video.

Crump’s journey began in a video first uploaded on November 3, 2019 where she explained how she officially told her landlord she would be moving out of her home and into her car.

According to Crump, this wasn’t some impromptu decision and she had been spending a few months actively thinking about it before taking the plunge.

Nikita has been living in her car for over a year.

Despite having a nice house with affordable rent and good roommates, she felt moving into her car was something she “had to do.”

Since then, she has successfully spent a whole year living in her car and marked the anniversary of her first night by explaining how she is able to stay cool or warm at night.

In the backseat of her car, the YouTuber keeps a pillow and too fuzzy blankets which she uses to cover herself up.

Along with her sweatpants and sweatshirt, she is able to stay warm even in the winter months. However, occasionally she has to put a jacket on if it’s ever especially cold outside.

“In Northern California, a lot of the warmer days are still cool nights, so I’m fortunate that most nights throughout the year are totally bearable, but there’s totally been the occasion where it is hot, I am sweating and I wear as minimal clothing as I can,” she explained.

Luckily, she also has a rechargeable fan which can help her get through the night if need be despite only staying charged for one day.

In addition to just staying cool, the TikTok sensation also revealed she showers at the gym and keeps plenty of personal hygiene products inside her bag including shampoo, toothpaste, and deodorant to name a few.

Now, Crump is hitting the road and embarking on a two-month-long trip around the United States where she’ll be documenting her experiences.

The entertainer’s decision to live in her car has paid dividends, as she currently has over one million followers on TikTok.
